Copy of Adi Shakti Coven
Ra Ma Kaur calls on her passionate study of Kundalini Yoga, Elemental Medicine which includes the ancient Daoist lineage of Stone, Soundscapes, Ancestral Healing and Astrology to inspire and inform each offering she makes to her community. Current offerings include weekly classes, workshops, private mentorship, women's lunar gatherings, and ceremonies in the Asheville, North Carolina area. She works with women locally and virtually within the collective the Adi Shakti Coven. Annually she offers a global pilgrimage in honor the Divine Feminine and an awakening of Earth stewardship. Ra Ma also makes handcrafted stone and plant medicines, flower essences and tonics, which are available in her apothecary. Offerings often emphasize the sacred sound science of mantra and gong bath healing. Ra Ma even chants mantra while making botanical and stone medicines in her kitchen. She is dedicated to midwifing cosmic evolution through the weaving of spaces of sovereign sanctuary where we may fall in love with our Earth.
Adi Shakti Coven
a wisdomkeeper’s collective to fall in love with gaia
in honor of the Divine Feminine Revolution
Adi Shakti--Adi Shakti is a sound current that invokes the primal power, the first power in its Divine Feminine aspect. This is what is both known and unknown, and is the embodiment of the cycle of life and death. (Sourced from 3HO by Sat Purkh Kaur).
Coven--a collection of individuals with similar interests.
dear sister, friend, witch, priestess, goddess lover, maiden, mother, crone, wise womxn and hidden one,
Spiral Three will combine a dedicated group of women who live in Asheville and others from afar who attend virtually, as well as newcomers to this community of wisdom keepers. Spiral Three is a 3 month flow beginning with the Scorpio New Moon, October 27th and culminating in January of 2020. Spiral Four will emerge with the Capricorn New Moon of 2020.
There are two paths available, virtual and in-person (application based and space is limited). Both paths will welcome a monthly virtual New Moon ceremony (that is recorded), a full curriculum (now weekly so that depth is achieved), and an active and supportive facebook group. The in person journey will include two full day retreats in my Temple, honoring Samhain on November 2nd and Winter Solstice on December 21st.

Charge of the Adi Shakti Coven
We are the stewards of the eight fold path—we are dedicated to the highest Truth, to the Infinity of all that is. We honor great Spider Woman and all that she weaves. We invoke the medicine of the Rose. We drink our sovereignty from the infinite well of prana, the Chalice. Like the Vesica Pisces we merge the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine, the Priestess and the Priest, the yin and the yang, the shadow and the light. We walk the beauty way.
We are anchored in the 8 phases of the Moon and the 8 seasons of the Wheel of the Year. We are guided by the symbols and concepts of infinity, prana, the Chalice, the Rose, Spider Woman, Truth, sovereignty and the beauty way. We draw upon these 8 sources of inspiration in our work together:
Kundalini Yoga & Meditation--A time tested technology for the Aquarian Age
Sound Healing--Chanting Mantra, Gong, Singing bowl, Drum and other sacred instruments to elevate
Goddess Archetypes--Storytelling and Myth blossoming from the Divine Feminine
Earth Medicine--Together we build a deep connection to the Earth through a merging with the Sones, Tree Spirits, Plant spirits, Nature Spirits, Earth's energy ley lines and our Ancestral Memory
Astrology--Luminary, Planetary, Starry and Seasonal wisdom to guide the rhythms of our lives
Ceremony--Invoking Spirit and an embodied connection to the Otherworld
Sacred Council--Sisterhood and community sharing in a sovereign container
Dharma Art--Service projects offered with devotion as an offering to our greater community
as a coven we will commit to a daily sadhana of the kundalini bhakti meditation
Adi Shakti Mantra:
Adi Shakti, Adi Shakti, Adi Shakti, Namo Namo
Sarab Shakti, Sarab Shakti, Sarab Shakti, Namo Namo
Pritham Bhagvati, Pritham Bhagvati, Pritham Bhagvati, Namo Namo
Kundalini Mata Shakti, Mata Shakti, Namo Namo
I bow to, I call on the primal power.
I bow to, I call on the all encompassing power and energy.
I bow to, I call on that through which God creates.
I bow to, I call on the creative power of the Kundalini, the Divine Mother Power.
Yogi Bhajan taught "When India and Indian women knew this mantra, it dwelt in the land of milk and honey." The power of the Adi Shakti sound current is that it calls upon the Mother Power, the Creative Force of all that is. With this Call you will be free of all doubt and insecurities and your energy may flow confidently, so that you live with grace, sovereignty, and dignity.
How we gather
Each New Moon a curriculum is birthed
You will receive an email with the contents of our curriculum including recordings and pdfs. Each module will invoke a Goddess inviting in a new myth, tree spirit, nature spirit and stone. We will work under the energetics of the current season. You will also receive an astrological forecast of the lunar cycle to come and a Kundalini meditation to navigate the current cosmic weather.
We gather virtually each New Moon in Ceremony
We will connect on zoom for a live virtual ceremony. This will offer an opportunity to delve deeper into the Goddess and her story, to hear the highlights of the lunar forecast, to share in sacred sound current, meditation and gratitude. A space is created for each person to share her experiences and intentions for the month to come. Each New Moon Ceremony will be recorded so that each member will have access regardless of time and space.
We gather live in person in Ra Ma's temple living room in honor of the Solar Gate and Cross Quarter Holy Days
Our face to face, hand to hand, heart to heart connection will deepen our connections with one another. We will spend our live sessions activating and aligning our glandular system, strengthening our nervous systems, balancing the hemispheres of the brain and clearing the subconscious with Kundalini Yoga, Meditation and Sound Healing. In sacred council we will have a space for deep sharing and ceremony as we honor the ripeness of our harvest, and there will be time to journey to meet aspects of the Goddess.
Facebook private group
A private facebook group will give you support 24/7. This will also provide a forum to ask questions in regards to our curriculum and to share your triumphs and personal blocks. This private group provides a platform for continual connection and solidarity.

Why we gather
Join in this Divine Feminine revolution as an offering to yourself, to your highest destiny, to your lineage and to all women who have come before you. This is an opportunity to follow your curiosity, to activate your Truth, to be seen and to be heard.
As you step into a safe container for personal healing, your vulnerability will increase your strength. You will enrich your life with deepened self care. With this commitment you will increase self knowledge. You will heal the shadows of your ancestors.
As we deepen our relations a long last community will form. Mentoring and development will occur in our sacred container. Sisterhood will enrich your life, so that when in doubt, you will know who will step in to take care of you.
Like a hologram, as you heal, the collective heals. This is a form of spiritual activism. Our container will create an experiential way to go deep. We welcome all who identify as woman, womb one. There is a place for every woman in the circle, the new and the seasoned. Each one of us offers a unique seed of inspiration and wisdom to our circle and each one will bring value.
If you are wishing to play small, stay stuck and check out or if you are not willing to hold space for others in their vulnerability, this is not the place for you at this time. We are going into the depths and beyond the surface. At times this may feel uncomfortable or awkward. We may enter realms that feel sticky and we will do this intentionally with the ability to clear old paradigms. We will consciously make a space for those of diverse backgrounds to enter and feel held and welcomed. We will have strict guidelines to protect one another's sharing. Each participant's honor and confidentiality will be upheld within all realms we work.
Your investment in the Adi Shakti Coven from October 2018-June 2019 is $1111 paid in full or 9 monthly installments of $150 due by the 1st of each month. These dues will cover all sessions live and virtual. New coven members will be offered sister support by those who have completed Spiral One. This collective will continue to weave and evolve beyond June 2019 after a brief rest period over the summer. There is always an option to receive the Summer Moons for continued support.
As you evolve within the coven you will be offered greater leadership roles so that you continue to grow and feel empowered in your abilities to work deeply with the seasons, facilitate and hold ritual space. In the interest and dedication to deepening community and sisterhood, each coven member will receive an 18% discount code to be used for any private sessions, Women's Wisdom gatherings and retreats with Ra Ma.
